Monaco’s Red Nose Day gets a new look today

frankie3The Enfants de Frankie, under the High Patronage of Prince Albert, have organised the 12th edition of “Red Nose Day for Monegasques”. The event runs across Tuesday, December 6, under the aegis of Saint Nicholas, Patron Saint of children.

Breaking news: this year brings a new touch, the traditional “red nose” becomes yellow, thanks to the emoticon giant, Smiley World Limited.

Anyone can partake by affixing a “nose” to their vehicle, a simple and effective gesture to show support for children in need in the area.

Noses are available Tuesday for only €2 from Frankie Stands at Carrefour Monaco, as well as at post offices, pharmacies and tobacco-press partners.

On December 17, “Le Noël de Frankie”, also under the High Patronage of HSH, will offer 4,000 underprivileged children and their families an exceptional day in Monaco, by invitation only, with a parade, animations and a Christmas Show with snacks and gifts for all.

During the past fifteen years the association has helped some 20,000 ill and underprivileged children in Monaco and the PACA region. (Photos:
